—In this study, Artificial Neural Networks (ANN)
and Artificial Immune (AI) techniques designed in the form of
a hybrid structure are used for diagnosis of epilepsy patients
via EEG signals. Attributes of EEG signals are needed to be
determined by employing EEG signals which are recorded
using EEG. In this process the raw digital signals data is
received and is summarized in some respects. From this data,
four characteristics are extracted for the classification process.
20% of available data is reserved for testing while 80% of
available data is being reserved for training. These actions
were repeated five times by performing cross-validation
process. AIS is used for updating the weights during training
ANN and a program is constituted for the classification of EEG
signals. Education and recording processes were performed
with different parameters by means of the constituted program.
The obtained findings show that the proposed method was
effective for achieving accurate results as much as possible
with the use of ANN and AIS, together.
